Hi ho, Hi ho...

Edit Post

Work continues on the Dwarves. I finished cleaning up the half-naked Troll Slayers this week. These will be a hoot to paint, maybe I can try for some tattoos on them.

Also, this is my "Dragon Slayer" hero. The idea is that he'll be being "held back" by his two minders until he's allowed to jump in the fray (the other dwarves get upset when he kills everything before they can get a chance).

And this in my Rune Priest, sans anvil. Just some weapon swaps here.

I also managed to finish building my artillery. I learned from the High Elf bolt throwers that it'll be easier to paint the crew on the base, base it and then add the cannon on later.


Same goes for the Flame Cannons. These came with an extra bit that looked like one of Wile E. Coyote's Acme dynamite detonators. I have no idea where it was supposed to go (even after looking at pics of the 28mm Flame Cannon) so I left it off.


Finally, the Gynrocopters are all set as well. I used clear acrylic rods to base them.


Also, a bit of progress on the MoW stuff. I tried out my Iron Fist conversion using a War Galley. It still needs some putty work but I think it looks a lot better than the stock one. I also got a type cog out of the deal too!

Now with more games nobody plays!

I've been waffling between a bunch of projects lately so progress is sporadic. I have started bulding my Dwarves though, they've been easy to bring along and prep the last month or so. These are my Rangers, I managed to separate all the models from one-another so I can stagger them on the bases and make them look a little more skirmishy.

The Thunderers are all set too, and since I had some room on the strips I added two heroes and my general to them.

Warmaster Dwarf Thunderers

The general's just a regular hero with a weapon swap, guarded by the halberdiers from the Throne of Power pack.

The heroes are a "Warrior hero" and a "Thunderer hero". I've also got parts to do a "Dragonslayer hero".

I'm also been working on an Empire fleet for Man O' War. I've built most of the ships at this point, all that's left are some Iron Fists (which I plan to convert as the lack of oars on the model bugs me) and the masts.

I also made bases for them using wood putty, plastic card and washers (to help them slide easier on the table top). In true Dave form I painted one up, liked it, and tried to do the other but couldn't get them to the same point. So I'm starting again on them all and doing them all at the same time.

So here's what I've been working on in secret this past month, a birthday present for my buddy Matt. Matt has an Emperor's Children army loaded with various double innuendos, sexual entendres and sketchy vans. One of the things lacking however are the various cult troops. Now he has Noisemarines but never bothered painting the others as they don't really fit the fluff. I set out to rectify the situation by creating some Slaanesh influenced cult troopers.

Essentially these Marines are part of the Cult Marine Exchange Program. After a brief stay with the Emperor's Children however none of the parent legions wanted any of their troops back for various reasons eluded to below.

Emperor's Children Cult Marines

The Khorne Berzerkers that found their way into the EC were denied re-entrance into the World Eaters Legion because their fellow legionaries found their ball gags and dominance issues more than a little disturbing, that and they didn't even know where to start with the assless chaps... This suited the newly renamed S&M Berzerkers of Slaanesh just fine as the concept of the "safe-word" that the World Eaters were trying to introduce to them was frankly too confusing.

Emperor's Children Berserkers

The Plaguemarines of Nurgle were denied re-admittance to the Deathguard for fear that the various strains of herpes and the clap that they brought with them would decimate legion morale and require too many raids on cranberry agri-worlds. The STD Plaguemarines of Slaanesh returned to the EC where resistance to such infections is higher.

Emperor's Children Plague Marines

The sorcerers of the Thousand Sons that came by to pick up the exchange Rubric Marines simply left in disgust. Apparently there was a mix up in the shipping department when the Rubric Marines arrived and their container was mistaken for one filled with sex dolls for the legionaries. Apparently the new paint jobs and modifications the EC fitted the suits with was beyond the sorcerers' tenets of good taste...

Emperor's Children Rubric Marines

In an attempt to rectify the situation the EC fashioned some nice Tzeentch blue speedos for the suits and tried to return them to the Thousand Sons. The offer was politely denied by the Sons however as the amount of cleaning the suits would have to endure wasn't cost effective for the legion. The EC ended up keeping the suits and dubbed them the Thousand Sex Dolls.
